  1. A little too "harmless" for me, but the detailing is gorgeous!

    1. I love the details too! They would definitely have kept me as engaged as a child. I don't mind these as much as the extra cutesy illustrators who make all the main characters into young children, like Jessie Wilcox Smith or Margaret Tarrant. Freeman is child appropriate but these have a "classic" feel to them too.
